Glad I got up early to see Justin Thomas tear it up and make history. 2nd shot into 18 is as good as you can hit it.

There is always an international feed with these global coverage events, to cover ad time and also to allow focus on international players who might not necessarily be in the mix. Surprised to see Ewan Porter on the commentary team but have to say he is VERY good !!

So Max, if I don't respond to your comments, it's just because I'm ignoring you because I think you're an arsehole

Yeah I watched most of his round, the putt he made where he hit it at right angles through the fringe was ridiculous.
